We helped ^Granny^ pass over to the Rainbow Bridge in the winter of 2004. She just had too many old age problems and we know that she only wanted to be in comfort and peace. 
^Granny^ is young and  playful and without any scars on her body or heart. She is buried in a little grove of trees in our backyard.
We often called her Granny Angel...she is one now.
We miss her.

^Granny^ Angel

Granny was a stray who arrived at our house with a tail that had been cut in half, raw and bleeding, and what looked to be a large burn on her back at the base of her tail. She had ear mites and body odor. It also looked as though someone had been hacking at her fur with scissors. We treated her injuries and mites and she had a check-up and vaccinations at the veternarian clinic. Because we already had 4 cats indoors, we decided to leave Granny outside, where we fed her and provided her with shelter. However, when the weather turned cold, I felt sorry for her and she's been an indoor cat since. Granny is getting on in years with bulging eyes and bowlegs, but we tell her that she's beautiful. She'll be safe and loved until it's time for her to go the Bridge.

Until We Meet Again...
 
I will never know what I did to deserve such an awful life full of abuse and neglect. My life had become so sad and lonely it was like living in an endless, dark tunnel. I remember looking up one day and seeing a bright light shining at the end of the tunnel.
The light was so bright I thought God must have sent an angel to finally end my suffering.
 
God did send an angel, he sent you.
The bright light I had seen was your smiling face.
You promised me that my days of neglect and abuse were over.
My battered body and broken spirit hardly dared to believe it was true.
 
You opened your heart and your home and gave me more love and comfort and safety than I had ever known before.
You gave me the softest bed my tired, aching bones had ever felt and more toys and attention than I had ever dreamed existed.
I no longer cringed when a hand was raised near me, because your hands had only kindness and treats to offer me.
I no longer feared the sound of feet approaching, because your feet had never kicked me, they had only taken me on wonderful adventures to exciting new places.
 
Although "quantity" of time can be measured in days and weeks, there is no way to measure the "quality" of time.
So there is no way to really measure just how deeply your love and devotion affected my life.
 
But sometimes, even love and devotion and all the medical attention in the world can't heal a body that has been battered and broken for too long.
So please do not be sad that I am gone.
 
You performed a miracle in what little time we had together.
You made my spirits soar and helped my soul find peace and contentment.
From the day I met you I never suffered again, not even at the end.
Just knowing that my memory would live on in your heart forever gave me the strength to let go and find my way to Rainbow Bridge.
 
So go forward from today with only happy memories of me in your heart and let them give you the strength to keep on lighting up sad, lost lives.
Remember I will live forever in your heart and in the stars up above and my star will shine brighter with every life that's been touched by your love.
 
Until we meet again...
